Krill is a term of Norwegian origin that designates the plankton of the cold seas, consisting of small crustaceans resembling shrimp.
The oil extracted from krill offers many health benefits because it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as EPA and DHA, but also in antioxidants, carotenoids and phospholipids.
The antioxidants contained in krill oil, and especially astaxanthin, help to fight against free radicals, linked to oxidative stress, responsible for cell aging.
Krill oil is beneficial for joint health and helps maintain the balance between omega-3, 6 and 9. Indeed, our Western diet is often richer in omega-6 than in omega-3, which can lead to a harmful imbalance for our joints. Krill oil helps stabilize the levels of omega-3 and omega-6 to provide better joint comfort. It also has an anti-inflammatory capacity, which gives it anti-arthritis properties.
Thanks to its high content of omega-3 and phospholipids, krill oil contributes to the proper functioning of the brain. It supports and improves the cognitive functions by exerting a stimulating action on the memory and the concentration.
Finally, krill oil offers multiple benefits for cardiovascular health. It acts on blood lipids and reduces blood concentrations of triglycerides and LDL cholesterol, known as "bad cholesterol", thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular accident.
The omega-3s, such as EPA and DHA contained in krill oil, contribute to normal heart function and normal brain function.
